Are you a gun owner? What do you think is the must-have no matter what? :):):)

DreamWolf DreamWolf 04/03/2012

I used to be totally against them, but here's the deal: if guns were totally outlawed criminals would still have them, meaning that if you ever got attacked (etc.) you would be totally defenseless - and who would protect your beloved ones if not you?! ;)

I couldn't say a wee bit that I know much about them, but I do want to learn enough to know which are the firearms to have in case if let's say the world ever went to hell... :D ^^

No, nope, I am not here to propagate violence! But I do know that if anyone ever tried to harm my Master or His kids I would be there ready for anything! Don't misunderstand me please, the whole topic disgusts me, but if I had to choose between my Master and His kids or the fucker coming at U/us it is obvious which way to go! And it is always better to be safe than sorry, and be ready for the worst and hope for the best! ^^

I have a browning gold shotgun which is a personal favorite, a .44 handgun, a .357 handgun, a .22 handgun, a 7mm rifle, a black powder rifle,and AK-47 and a 9mm handgun and I think I am forgetting a couple. Bet people who have been following my posts didn't see that coming! Shotguns are easy and most people can still buy them in most states (that I know of) They have a wide range of gauges. I personally have a 12 gauge, and I am able to handle it easily despite the large punch it pack due to the fact it is a well built gun. You can also load them with buckshot which is great for home defense if you are not a dead on shot. It would be ignorant of me not to mention a couple things:
Treat every gun as if it is loaded
Never point one at something you are not willing to kill
Never ever even hold a gun if you are not sure you are comfortable. By that I do not mean you cant have some apprehension, it is normal to be a little skitterish the first time you shoot a gun, and it is best to shoot one that someone you know has before purchasing your own, that way if you do not like it at all, you are not stuck with a gun you hate to have.

I'll definitely get a gun once I live by myself. Probably a .22 rifle or handgun.
But what I really want is a Luger. They look so awesome.

Right now the only gun I have is a air pellet rifle. Wouldn't stop anyone but it would slow them down if hit in the knee.

I want a small hand gun for protection. My hubby is gone from 4:00 am on sunday to thursday afternoon or friday morning. Being home alone at night I would feel more secure.

I have a .38 Taurus revolver. I prefer revolvers, because I've got small hands, and racking slides can be difficult for me.

Though when you get your gun, definitely invest in a bore snake. Best cleaning equipment for a gun ever.

I am not a gun owner but I was thinking of going to get my permit and getting one. There has been to much stuff happening where I live at and I am starting not to feel safe and I have not even been here long. It was a good area when I first moved up here but now I am not so sure. I just get scared because of my kids so that means getting a safety box to put it in. I don't know what I would get but it be something small I could carry with me.

Nope. Not my thing. We have an air rifle, that we shoot at rotten vegetables on our property for fun.

I was raised around guns, (and once loaded one (despite being told again and again, "Don't touch the guns.") when I was alone in the house at around 9 and thought someone was walking around the house. No one was, but I almost shot myself, then carefully unloaded and put the gun away, despite my father thinking that for decades I had NEVER touched the guns.... because he told me not to.) and as an adult decided I didn't want to own one.

I am a gun owner several times and types over. In my humble opinion the "ultimate" or "perfect" firearm is the one that your are completely trained and familiar with along with possessing the skills required to use it when defending your life with it. There are many excellent firearms that can be relied on - though in my case my carry gun is a glock - but you as the owner you owe it to yourself to get the other 3/4 of it - good training and skills development.

I'm not a gun owner. I'm kind of torn on the issue. On the one hand, I definitely believe that people should have the right to defend themselves but on the other hand if guns were only for cops there would be a lot less deaths.

The problem with that is that unless the cop:law-abiding citizen ratio was 1:1, criminals who managed to steal or build guns would have an edge. Guns are not terrifically hard to make, and average police response time is 10 minutes.

There's also the case of those those of us who live in the country - the only times I ever saw my Dad's guns were when he was putting injured, dying animals out of their misery (we were an hour from the vet, and what vet is going to make a house call for a deer bleeding out?) or shooting very dodgy acting animals that were probably rabid. The defensive uses of a gun aren't limited to human aggressors.

My husband and I both have our own separate firearms. We were raised in rural areas and was taught thoroughly by our respective parents firearm safety, maintenance and accuracy. I also took defense classes for pistols to supplement my knowledge.

For self-defense, a .38 derringer and a Beretta .44 (mine)--a Colt 1911 .45 cal. pistol and a cheap .22 pistol (hubby).

For bears, mountain lions and other predators while hiking, riding or camping my Super Redhawk .454 Caskill.

For hunting our meat-His 7mm rifle and my 30-06.

Plinking at targets or small game--we each have a .22 rifle.

---Owning a gun is a HUGE responsibility that people should not take lightly. If you are not trained or have little knowledge about guns....leave them alone until you have taken the appropriate safety and shooting courses. More accidents happen with inexperienced gun owners than lives saved by defending yourself.

--ALSO!!! Have a secure, locking gun cabinet for safe storage. You do NOT want your children or other innocent people harmed by your firearms!!!

Not a gun owner, too young atm. I do plan on getting my license to possess a firearm though.It really depends on the person's size, for example I love the D.Eagle but they shoot 50 calibur rounds andd I'd probably smash my face with the kickback unless I was muscled as hell. (I'm pretty small though so eh)

The best person to ask would probably be an instructor at a firing range or the men who sell the guns. Heh.
My mom has a small pistol, my dad has a Glock for quick access and shotguns from back when he used to hunt 'n we lived in a rough neighborhood.

I'm a former soldier so there is no way I would ever be without a firearm. I own a .45, shotgun, and Civilian M-4 rifle. I am a firm believer in gun ownership.

I am not currently a gun owner. I think some people shouldn't be (like my mother because she can't even see that well). However, I'm a Criminal Justice major, so chances are that some day I will own a gun. At least I will have training!

I own a full safe of guns. I have 2 .45's, a .357, a .327, a 9mm, a .38, a 45/410, a .22 mag, 3 .22 LR rifles, a am sure a few more I forgot to mention. If you are looking for a gun, you need to decide what you want to use the gun for. Are you going to carry it with you? Are you going to use it around the house for home protection? When you get a good idea about it intended use, stop by a guns dealer and talk to the employees. They should be able to give you a good idea about which guns should work best for you. Plus you can get to hold them and get a feel for them. Some gun ranges also rent guns by the hour, so if you find one you want at a dealer you can try it out at the range before you buy it.

I am not a gun owner, and I don't want to be gun owner; but I have friends and family that are gun owners and have I no problem with them having them. I just have no desire for the responsibility of owning or shooting a firearm.

I don't own any guns myself (yet) but my husband does, both for sport and home/personal defense. (We're BIG 2nd Ammendment supporters.) His personal fave is his Beretta 92FS, which he's had for years and personally if I weren't around I think he'd marry it. Once I get my concealed weapons license I plan on getting something small to carry on me (probably something along the lines of a .38 Special), but in the meantime I use his Smith & Wesson 9 mil (it's smaller and lighter than his Beretta).

I have a Taurus PT 24-7/PRO-DS chambered in .40 S&W that's my daily concealed carry handgun. My wife has a nice little Kel-Tec 9mm for her concealed carry, and we have a short 12g mossie for home defense. Planning on buying an AR (traded the one I used to own for a motorcycle), and a few more pistols in the next six months.

My husband owns a gun and we've been trying to sell it for a while. His dad is supposed to buy it from us whenever his family comes to see us. It's one of those James Bond-looking guns because he had an ego the size of Cleveland.

I don't know enough about guns yet to know what I would consider to be an essential, but all the men in my family are hunters, so I have grown up with them in the house, and I want to get a pistol permit at some point, since my grandfather had a collection of them. I was very close to him and would love to have one of his guns.

I never have been a gun owner. I just don't really have any interest in them. Funny considering everyone in my family is and owns like a billion of them. lol Maybe that's what happened, I became gunned out from growing up around them. Anyways, I may not own one but I have no problem with others having them.

I personally own a 22 rifle, my husband gave it to me. He owns a different type of hunting rifle and a hand gun (In a locked, fireproof safe). My husband and son are hunters, I am NOT. They don't hunt for sport, though. They only hunt for what we can or will eat. We feel that sport hunting is a disgusting practice.

I do like to target practice once in awhile. My 22 is mainly for protection (We live in the country), target practice, or snakes.
